Analyzing Mohammad Siraj’s impeccable performance at Gabba (2021)
An Indian cricket team saddled with broken bones and battered bodies showed amazing zeal to retain the coveted Border-Gavaskar trophy with a historic three-wicket win over Australia in the fourth and final Test at Gabba by successfully chasing a 328-run target to seal the four-match series at 2-1.
Everyone performed exceptionally well, but the wickets Mohammad Siraj took were most talked about. And what made him such a remarkable bowler is his consistency to ball at good length for 3 sessions in disciplined manner.
Siraj’s remarkable spell of 5-73 on last day of 4th test match brought a lot of accolades across the globe. If we closely look at his postures at ball release of all his wickets, he was very consistent in maintaining that posture with variation in seams which landed him with good wickets. His elbow was flexed at an angle of less than 10 degree. Proper transfer of run-up momentum is an essential parameter for pace bowlers to ball at high speed. His perfect front foot contact combined with back lateral flexion led to good momentum transfer from lower body to shoulder followed by arms. Such balanced posture is of great importance as they help avoid injuries like lumbar spine, hamstrings.
